Save the Date!

Sunday, May 2, 2021
7:30 p.m. via Zoom Webinar

Audience members are cordially invited to Register to Attend the Virtual Candidate Forum. Zoom will automatically send an email (subject line: LWVS Candidate Forum for Scarsdale School Board Election Confirmation) with the webinar link. Registrants will also receive an automated email reminder shortly before the event.

The four candidates whose names will appear on the ballot for the two open seats in the upcoming School Board Election, Jim Dugan, Irin Israel, Jessica Resnick-Ault, and Alison Tepper Singer, have all been invited to participate as panelists. The two School Board seats will go to the two highest vote recipients in the May 18, 2021, election.

The candidate forum will offer an opportunity for candidate opening and closing statements as well as a question and answer format with timed responses. An LWV of Westchester-trained moderator from outside of Scarsdale will preside and the forum will be conducted in a way that does not promote or advance any candidate over another.

Please use the form below to submit audience questions for anonymous use at the Candidate Forum. Deadline: Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 12pm.

The Candidate Forum will be recorded and subsequently posted on this website for viewing on demand prior to the election.

The election will take place on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. For more information, please visit our School Budget Vote/School Board Election Voter Information page.

Questions regarding the Candidate Forum or the School Budget Vote and School Board Election should be directed to Alissa Baum and Beatrice Sevcik, the LWVS Voter Service Chairs.
